Will the too big to fail banks need a trillion dollars this time to cover their unknown exposure to Europe ?

Plenty of concern on hedge funds & CDS’ and a recent WSJ number was $640 billion:
http://blogs.wsj.com/marketbeat/2011/10/07/us-bank-exposure-to-europe-could-be-640-billion-per-congressional-paper/

TARP money was about returned except for AIG & GM but what did congress do to change their behavior of taking incredible risks with, potentially, taxpayer money ? Made it more complex so the big banks can gamble even more.

It’s business as usual but now with the housing residue of non-performing assets and claw backs from poor documentations.

On the side former Senator Corzine and former Goldman Sachs CEO (now there’s a company mentioned in every conversation on the real estate crash, big collections from AIG, D.C. insiders and sovereign nation on the crash) when asked about the missing $1.2 billion at MF Global sez……I dunno what happened……

Even Jim Cramer is freaking on the possible exposure to Europe if things don’t settle…..this effects every one of us…..today will be a big day…..

Kemp: Immigration Law Could Delay Licenses

Secretary of State Brian Kemp says it currently takes his office about 30 days to process new licenses and about two weeks for renewals. Kemp says the increased paperwork could delay approval times by 90 to 120 days.

Kemp says he’s working with the governor’s office and seeking more funding to increase his staff.

If only there had been a fiscal note. Too bad nobody [read: EVERYBODY except the majority party] asked for one. Thanks, Georgia legislators, for increasing spending and expanding the size of government.

“Thanks, Georgia legislators, for increasing spending and expanding the size of government.”

Georgia legislators said to tell you that you are very welcome and that they are always looking to find new and exciting ways to “help” and that there’s plenty more where that came from.
